Fridays at The Kitchen Next Door: a second helping of Cafe Society, July 28-August 1

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz visited the latest outpost of The Kitchen -- The Kitchen Next Door Glendale -- and realized it could be the next TGI spirit, if not execution. We also talked about building sandwiches and a life in Colorado with Stack Subs owner Rick Koerner in Chef and Tell.

Also this week, we pulled into Union Station to catch up on all the new dining options. Our writers did some cooking of their own when they entered a marijuana apple pie that took second in the Denver County Fair. And Colorado's own Red Robin took home the prize for the "single unhealthiest meal" in America.

We also counted over forty openings (as well as more than a dozen closings) in ourRestaurant Roll Call for July. And already there's more action...

OPENING TODAY: BurgerFi, 1147 Broadway
